Peaceful lighted deck

We found this image of a lighted deck that looks so peaceful!  I can only imagine it is overlooking a body of water with the sound of fish jumping or water stirring.  The lighted caps along with the deck lights give it just the right amount of ambiance.

Dock Lighting Mistakes To Avoid

A lighted boat dock will provide you with convenient and safe access to your boat. When you are designing your boat dock you should be sure to install lighting that provides you with proper visibility. When you are docking your boat at night or in harsh weather conditions, your dock lights will allow you to safely maneuver your vessel. To assist you with your project, here is a look at some common boat dock lighting mistakes that should be avoided.
Installing Elevated Bright Lights 
When you are installing boat dock lighting, it is important to avoid installing lights that are tall and very bright. If your lighting is installed too high off of the level of the dock, your visibility may be compromised. Instead, it is a great idea to install smaller lights that are at the hip level of the average person. This lighting level will provide you with proper visibility when you are getting off of your boat.



Choosing Metal Light Casings is another boat dock lighting mistake to avoid.  Since metal reacts and corrodes when it comes into contact with water, metal lights will quickly deteriorate when they are installed on your boat dock. To ensure that your boat dock lights last for as long as possible, you can choose lights that are housed in waterproof plastic.
Do Not Neglect the End of the Dock as you are designing your boat dock lighting.  You may want to pay specific attention to the area where passengers will disembark from the vessel. However, it is also highly important to illuminate the end of your dock. To ensure that you are able to identify your dock when you are pulling in during the nighttime, you can incorporate one or more colored lights into your design.

Residential Dock Ideas

We found this boat dock that is designed with a boat lift and a side lift for a smaller wave runner or other personal watercraft.  This looks to be a great design that still allows for ample room to move around the dock without being too crowded.  Also, a fantastic look with the pilings trim and the roof details. We don't see any cleats on the actual dock, which we would definitely add.
